Well, from my amateur understanding if the merge into /zcode/trunk/lcast was done before the merge into /zcode/trunk/lcast when the top level merge was done the mergeinfo on /zcode/trunk/lcast should have been elided. My only guess is that the person that did the top level merge reverted the property change to the /zcode/trunk/lcast folder since they figured there was no change in that folder.
Once again, from my understanding you can remove that merge info from /zcode/trunk/lcast because it is included in the /zcode/trunk folder.
YMMV... check your logs and I expect you will see that the merge for 1124-1406 into /trunk did not include a change to /trunk/lcast to elide the property... which it should of. Also, you might want to setup a test scenerio of this by dumping your repo or just create a similar situation in a test repo.
Also, you might want to train your people to not merge from project sub-folders to prevent child-node/file mergeinfo.
